    Default Joe Johnson turns 29 on Tue - Soon-to-be-NYK?

    It appears as if Joe Johnson will be a New York Knick. He lists NY as his #1 option, will take less $ to come to NYC and be reunited with his former coach... But he is 29 and a playoff goat... Should we get excited about this?

    Personally, if we went beyond 4 years.... SUICICDE. Having him for 4 seasons means we get JJ at age 29,30,31,32. Not sure I want a 33-34 yr-old JJ at 12 mil per, you know what I mean?

    He may take less money per year, but I think he'll demand that 5th year (could we get a club option).

    I could live with JJ, but only if it brings Lebron or Amar'e plus another free agent (Thomas, Salmons, Lee, Parker).

    It'll also help if JJ signs with us quickly, for that will help recruit other free agents.

    I just didn't expect our rebuilding plan to center on a 29 yr-old playoff bum. Oh well. Time to get excited (sarcasm enter here).

    if its not at the max then why not? maybe we could somehow end up with Johnson Bosh.Amar'e and maybe sign Felton if we have enough remaining and pull of a deal for a decent C or put our trust in Jordan? unno it'll be interesting to see the one red flag i have about this guy is his playoff performance this past season, although the one against the Celtics a couple years back was nice maybe he's worth a shot.

    besides if it counts for anything my gut is telling me we get him and either Bosh or Amar'e and we pull off a trade this off-season......maybe a good thing or bad thing but its just my gut hahaha, again unno if that means anything

    It's a horrible consolation.

    You can't deny it's an upgrade, but it makes our draft picks look even more moronic if we sign Joe Johnson. Alabi and Gallon were there and we had no front court to speak of.

    If Walker breaks out this year, we'll have a young 2 guard playing behind an old 2 guard who has nowhere to go but dooooooooowwwwwwwnnnnn.

    3 years @ $2.48c a year would be fine.

    Thats the thing Walker has been working rigorously this offseason and has already lost 27 pounds and has been working on his jumpshot so why not maybe give him a shot? but also another side of me wants to go with J.J cause we need to increase our roster dramatically this offseason, so why not possibly use Walker as a 6th man? instead of Chandler( who may be traded ). i mean if the price is right on J.J why not?

    Default Joe Johnson wants a Big Johnson contract

    Does everyone forget ...The Hawks reportedly offered Joe Johnson a four-year $60 million contract extension last summer which he turned down...?

    The man wants max money, he wants to go to a team with mega-playoff potential, what makes anyone think he's gonna take less than max to lure him away from Hawks? oh yeah, the allure of Mike D'amntoni's ass!

    Joe Johnson, Amare, and Damntoni had a 29 win season in 2003-4.

    Yeah, but that team had Marbury. Hence the losing season. Also when our franchise went downhill.... Curry-Marbury trades. Bad time to remember.

    And why did they do that Kiya? Because they cleared out their **** and sent it on a private jet to NY. It was a plan much the same as the Knicks are trying to execute now.

    They sent us Marbury who was a joke and Hardaway. The very next season, Phoenix went 62-20, went to the WCF, lost to SA.

    The Knicks got demoralisingly swept in the first round and have been pathetic ever since.

    Maybe we do sign-&-trade. Dump Curry's expiring contract on ATL along with sending them Wilson Chandler. That's about 14mil. We sign JJ to that 14 mil. Still have space to sign both Amar'e and Lebron. Add Mike Miller with the MLE.

    Douglas
    Johnson
    LJ
    Gallo
    Amar'e

    Walker, Miller, Barron and the rookies.

    Why would Atlanta take Curry back?

    Johnson is the one guy i don't want on the Knicks but the most likely free agent canidate to be a Knick.

    The writing is on the wall for Johnson to come here.

    He wants to play with Mike D! plain and simple. He wants to play with the coach that started him and propelled his offensive game to shine in Phoenix!

    I have always seen Johnson becoming a Knick, but this HAS to be a backup plan to LBJ, Wade, Bosh, and even a possible sign and trade Lee for Tony Parker deal....Johnson should be middle of our long list of possibilities.
